10 Benefits of UPVC Windows and Doors

UPVC(Unplasticised Polyvinylchloride) is the best standard material used in windows and doors but do you ever consider the advantages of selecting UPVC windows compared to other window & door products?

Know the 10 benefits of UPVC windows and doors for your home:

1. Customizable

Most of the UPVC windows, doors, and external facias will come in white color. However, Developments in the UPVC manufacturing process have meant homeowners are no longer limited to not only color but a series of customizable shapes, styles, and imitation effects such as wood grain.

Installation companies and manufacturers can now tailor UPVC products to your desired specifications & features. Meaning windows and doors will outfit looks perfectly into your home or property.

2. Security

The security of a home, office, and other property is paramount to any type of window or door installation. This is the reason why UPVC exceeds expectations with an ultra-light yet sturdy frame, used in conjunction with various looking combinations, and cover double glazed pane of glass will prevent an intruder from breaking in.

3. Insulation

Energy efficiency is at the front of everyone's mind when it comes to a new type of windows & doors and everyone considers the choice of material used will impact the warmth and window energy rating of your home or property.

UPVC is a low conductor of heat temperature meaning when fitted correctly it will form a closed air system minimizing the heat loss, experienced by non-insulting material.

4. Low Maintenance

UPVC is a low maintenance material and no need regular monitoring for windows & doors, unlike UPVC, which is a natural material that requires annual sanding, varnishing, and repainting. Windows & doors made from UPVC can last for decades without any sign of weathering, the only upkeep is a wipe down clean with soapy water or uses glass cleaner spray to prevent staining and remove grime or dirt.

5. Durability

The material is incredibly tough meaning the frames can cope against the most extreme varnishing elements and are not affected by any temperature also not affected by rot and corrosion which is a major advantage for properties located near the seaside where high salt content can be problematic. The UPVC coating is also protected against ultraviolet (UV) rays which prevent the material from fading in heat and prolonged sun exposure.

6. Ventilation

UPVC windows can come in various window style configurations providing an efficient ventilation system with effective airflow into all surrounding in the room. There two configuration window is called "tilt and turn" which consists of two-window arrangement option which can open in two separate directions providing draft-free ventilation.

When tilted position inwards, hot air can escape through the top gap and side gap openings while turning the window to open fully can quickly ventilate the atmosphere of the entire room useful for cleaning or refreshing.

7. Eco-Friendly

The average life span of UPVC windows & doors can range between 40-60 years and are made from mostly recyclable materials to sustain minimal long-term impact on the environment.

When you replacing old windows & doors made from UPVC ask your installer if they will be disposed of accordingly to ensure are recycled, and material can be reused in other products such as pipes, plumbing fittings, and more.

8. Weather Resistant

Weathering is a common problem amongst most materials used on the exterior of a building. UPVC windows and doors do not react with water and air and are not susceptible to natural elements, meaning a longer life span without aging.

While UPVC can stand up to the all-weather condition and require less maintenance than naturally occurring counterpart materials such as wood, we recommend taking regular care of external UPVC parts of installations.

9. Soundproofing

The UPVC material works in two combinations with the double glazed window panels to help decrease the amount of noise that can pass into your home. Most UPVC windows and doors should reduce external noise by up 50% compared to traditional counterparts.

10. Fire retardant

The Fire service building regulation state that units and frames for windows and doors must be made from fire-rated materials preventing external fire spread. UPVC is also a material required by building regulations to adhere to the fire safety protocol, meaning the UPVC material will keep the primary route open for 30 mins in the event of a fire incident.
